Living in Saitama
Saitama Prefecture, one of the few landlocked prefectures in Japan, is located north of Tokyo in the Kanto region of Honshu. It is considered to be a part of the Greater Tokyo Metropolitan Area, and many of its residents commute to Tokyo daily, making Saitama Prefecture's economy largely dependent on Tokyo. The population of Saitama Prefecture is 7.19 million. Much of Saitama's population lives in its larger cities; Saitama City, the capital, Soka, Misato, as well as many other smaller cities. Many Tokyoites travel to Saitama for shopping. Costco, Lalaport, IKEA and one of the largest shopping malls in Japan, Koshigaya LakeTown are all located in Saitama.
